In a bid to bring pollution levels down, Kolkata police will reportedly add over 200 units of the Tata Nexon EVs to its fleet. According to a recent report, Kolkata police will replace its ageing diesel-powered fleet of patrol vehicles with electric vehicles by gradually inducting about 226 units of the Nexon EV.

The Kerala Motor Vehicle Department has leased a fleet of 65 Nexon EVs for a period of 8 years from EESL

The department of deputy secretary, home and hill affairs department has sanctioned ₹ 8.82 crore for the project. A few years ago, the city police had added a few units of the Mahindra e2O electric vehicles in its fleet for limited use. These vehicles were used for patrolling in the Rabindra Sarobar and Subhas Sarobar areas. The idea was to keep the pollution levels under control, where hundreds of locals come for morning and evening walks.

Currently, the Kolkata police have over 4000 vehicles in its fleet, including two-wheelers. Out of these vehicles, around 200 vehicles are more than 15-year-old vehicles and will be discarded by the police department.
